    Summary

But with a life of violence and loss behind him and the weight of the galaxy on his shoulders, Tali soon finds that perhaps John Shepard needs her just as much as she needs him...

    Violence, Language. Written mostly from Tali's and Shepard's POV, but everyone on the squad (including Joker) gets to be POV at least once. Even Kaidan.

    Summary

    With the crew milling about the Starboard Observation Lounge, Shepard took a moment to stand back in the shadows. It was good to see them all finally meshing as a team, though it didn't take long for someone to seek her out. Smirking slightly, Kasumi handed her a distinctive looking glass, prompting Shepard to raise an eyebrow. She knew exactly what was in that drink, and didn't need the plucky thief's assertion that the Weeping Heart cocktail was to help her 'acclimatise'... she was also certain that Thane had been close enough to hear the woman's comments. However she wasn't the type of person to back down from a challenge, so catching Thane's eye, Shepard raised the drell-venom infused drink in a silent toast before taking a sip; confident it was only the beginning.

    *A major re-working/updating of a story I originally wrote between 2014 - 2017*

    Summary

    Shepard has just been told she needs to face the music sometime - especially after she nukes an entire Batarian system. Now that she's left with some time to herself for once, she has some loose ends to tie up... and she has to figure out what she is going to do about her relationship with one bad-boy turian vigilante. She doesn't want to leave, but has to go home, and who knows for how long.

    As the Quarians say, "Through tides of light and shoals of dust, I will return to where I began. Keelah Se'lai."

    She just hoped that maybe, one day, fate would bring them back together again.

    Takes place after Arrival, and will likely run up to the end of Mass Effect 3 and beyond. No promises, though.

    Summary

    A re-upload of a finished project. Story originally posted on HF starting in 2011 and will span the entire trilogy which wasn't quite according the the original plan. Was persuaded by a few ppl to post on here aswell to find a bigger audience. Fixed the formatting in the earlier chapters to hopefully make it better to read. English is not my native language so expect grammer issues here and there. Alot of dialog is used from a game's playthrough as it heavily tied to and around the game's plot points. I hope you will all enjoy it.

    Original description: Jarod; A guy who has the hots for asari. So we'll follow selective parts of his story and see how well he does in life.

    Summary

    With the Mass Effect Trilogy legendary edition (Remaster) being in the works with an emphasis on being ‘more adult’ when it comes to the nude/sex scenes my imagination conjured a whirlwind of possibilities. So I’m here to fill in the sexual gaps yet again. As before I've scripted them to continue on from the main romance scenes within the games and are presented as if you are playing the game yourself. Each scene is only short so its a quick read and I will be adding more over the coming weeks.

    Also check out Filling in the Sexual Gaps: Andromeda.
